Re: MIR private track rental Friday Nov. 16th

Finally made it home tonight at 7:45pm. It was a long trip, but well worth the time and effort! Great to see everyone and finally meet some of the Northeast crew after all these years of talking to them on the forums.
What a great bunch of avid drag racers with some seriously fast cars!
Big thanks to Dan for all of his hard work on the really awesome videos and to RobZ and Gary for putting this event together and their help and encouragement in getting me to make some good runs!
Most of all many thanks to Norm for his hospitality and for taking the time to come with me on this VERY long trip,,,,couldn't have done it without you brother! We need to do this again sometime in the future!

Jimbo

It was good to see everyone again Jim !! That was fun even though our actual run time was severly cut by rain and accidents.

Jimbo, It was my pleasure. Always a good time hangin' with the broh.

It was fun to see all you fellow Z06vette.com brutha's. It was almost like an EastFest gathering. I just wish we could have seen a lot more racing. That air quality is awesome.

See my pics here -------> MIR 2012 Photos by performinnorman | Photobucket

I don't have my vids uploaded yet but they aren't nearly as good as Dan's.

Re: MIR private track rental Friday Nov. 16th

WOW guys I'm impressed!

Fast Cars!
Great Driving!
Negative DA!!!!!
And you got away with it!!!!!

If this was Bandimere here in Denver the DA would have been 8000ft and if you were running those times without the "NHRA approved safety gear" they would have called out the National Guard!

Way to go guys!!

Hey Ralph,
The safety Nazi's at Bandimere be damned,,,,,,,we need to see if we can put a rental together at PMP this coming spring. That way you can let your car "all the way out" to see what it is really capable of. With the changes you just made and getting the tune dialed in I'd like to see a mid 9 second pass at over 150. I'm going to get in touch with the management at PMP to see what it's going to take to get a rental set up. Are you up for this????
Jimbo

Re: MIR private track rental Friday Nov. 16th

Here are some things I learned during this event.
  • Being on the road for 14 hours in one day is tiring. But fun if you're with a good friend.
  • Be careful around Rick, he tends to lean the other way after a few beers.
  • Bob (Pit) still leaves on the rev limiter. I don't think he'll ever change.
  • Never, and I mean NEVER remove your seat belt while driving up to a toll booth in Maryland. Their cops have "little man syndrome" to the greatest magnitude.
  • There is a special method to using a hotel key card. :rolleyes
  • Dan can pretend to sleep to avoid driving a dangerous rig loaded with 2 cars.
  • Bob (2mch) roams the hallways and parking lots while drinking dark beer. Be careful.
  • Mike (Mjust) doesn't really have a Camaro. He's just pulling our legs.
  • Having DWJ walk up to you in a parking lot when you don't know he's there, will scare the hell out of a person.
  • Siska appears to be much happier when he's at the track and doesn't even need a drink to be happy.
  • Never order a fru fru drink in front of your buddies. You'll never hear the end of it.
